There are times when a bombproof container is necessary to protect your firearms from the elements and other times when a velvet hand will do the trick.

Gizmos & Gadgets — The BLOCK Target

Archers with any time behind the string have at least heard of the BLOCK target from Field Logic. The company’s history fascinated me years ago when I first wrote about its products.

Gizmos and Gadgets: CR123A Batteries

While updating the storm prep supplies in between severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings, I stopped by a national chain store with the intent to pick up new batteries. The CR123A batteries were between $6 and $9 each! With a half-dozen or so flashlights all using two to three batteries each, that puts a pinch on the ‘ol budget. I decided to do a little surfing and came across Cheaper Than Dirt!’s dozen pack of Surefire CR123A also known as the SF123A batteries.

This is one of those mileage may vary statements, because signal strength, solar assistance and volume would all effect the charge, but you get the idea.

Gizmos & Gadgets — Save Your Hearing and Your Wallet with Radians Custom-Molded Earplugs

If you are going to play with guns and ammo you’ll also need eyes and ears. We are talking protection of course. When it comes to ears I prefer two. No silly, not two ears—although that is a preference as well—two forms of hearing protection. Outside a quality pair of electronic muffs that lets me hear commands, line stoppages, emergencies, “Take ‘em! Hen, hen—No shot!” or potential safety hazards.
